Hey, Disney aficionados! 🌟 If you’re like me, you’ve been eagerly awaiting every morsel of news about the upcoming Disney Treasure Cruise. Well, the wait is over, and let me tell you, it’s going to be a game-changer! For the first time ever, Disney Cruise Line is bringing the magic of Disney Parks to the high seas. I’m talking about venues inspired by iconic attractions like “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,” Jungle Cruise, and even EPCOT! So, grab your Mickey ears and let’s dive into the top 10 secrets that are going to make this cruise a must-experience for any Disney fan.
1. A Jungle of a Time at Skipper Society 🌿
Ever wondered what it would be like to sip a cocktail in the middle of the Jungle Cruise? Skipper Society is making that dream a reality. The venue will feature the same species of plants that you find in Disneyland’s Jungle Cruise. How’s that for attention to detail?
2. Vintage Vibes 🧳
Skipper Society will also feature vintage-style luggage stacked neatly behind the bar, each plastered with travel stickers representing locations from the Jungle Cruise attraction. Yes, even the backside of water gets a shoutout!
3. Color Me Jungle Cruise 🎨
The green and red tones on the walls of Skipper Society will be exact matches to the Jungle Cruise attraction marquee at Magic Kingdom. It’s like stepping into the ride, but with cocktails!
4. Global Skipper Playlist 🎶
While you’re enjoying your drinks and bites, you’ll hear spiels from Jungle Cruise attractions worldwide. From English and Dutch to French and Cantonese, it’s a global Jungle Cruise experience!
5. Meet the “Ems Empress” 🚢
The vessel housing the bar will be named “Ems Empress,” after the Ems River where the Disney Treasure will make her first voyage. A sign will hang proudly inside the venue, so you know you’re in the right place.
6. Captain Nemo’s Legacy 🦑
Periscope Pub, inspired by “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,” will feature artifacts, drawings, and books used by Captain Nemo and his crew. It’s like a mini-museum at sea!
7. Hidden Coordinates 🗺️
Eagle-eyed fans will spot hidden numbers on the large submarine pressure gauge at Periscope Pub. These numbers honor the shipyard where the Disney Treasure was built and the hull numbers of each ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet.
8. Under-the-Sea Sips 🍹
Periscope Pub will offer a menu of light bites and undersea-inspired drinks, including three exclusive tap beers themed to the “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” film and attraction.
9. Figment’s Hide-and-Seek 🐉
In the Tomorrow Tower Suite, you’ll find Figment, the adorable purple dragon, hiding in various spots. A perfect photo op for EPCOT fans!
10. A Nod to Spaceship Earth 🌐
A special sculpture at the base of the Tomorrow Tower Suite’s spiral staircase will honor EPCOT’s iconic Spaceship Earth, complete with music and lighting effects.
